Bad news. A major vulnerability, known as “Heartbleed,” has been disclosed for the technology that powers encryption across the majority of the internet. That includes Tumblr.
We have no evidence of any breach and, like most networks, our team took immediate action to fix the issue.
But this still means that the little lock icon (HTTPS) we all trusted to keep our passwords, personal emails, and credit cards safe, was actually making all that private information accessible to anyone who knew about the exploit.
This might be a good day to call in sick and take some time to change your passwordseverywhere—especially your high-security services like email, file storage, and banking, which may have been compromised by this bug.
You’ll be hearing more in the news over the coming days. Take care.
And another interview with Solomin before his death. Legitimately made me cry the first time I watched it because he looks really bad and tired. And poor. It’s like one or two years before his death
The only new thing he says is that the Soviet movies were good because of the strict censorship and order. You know, all these stories about accepting actors and scripts - it was annoying, but it kept the quality high. But the rest of the interview he goes like “And so we shot the movie. Yep. Chose the actors. Played. Fun. Voila. Cool stuff”. The man is really tired. It makes my heart break
